Well, depends on which quickbooks you are asking about. You mention a mac OS but tagged your post for Windows version. So, second part first, yes, if you can start Boot Camp and buy and install Windows then you most certainly should be able to run QB for PC on your mac.
This may mean 2016 only runs on Sierra through Yosemite and not Mojave. But consider, you only have 7 months of support left for 2016 for Mac, about time for an upgrade to 2019 anyway https://help.quickbooks.intuit.com/en_US/kb/quickbooks-desktop-system-requirements/000005466_en_USAL...
Thanks for visiting the Community, HERB8165,
Let me share some information about QuickBooks Mac system requirements.
The recently released macOS Mojave should be compatible with your QuickBooks Mac 2016 version. You'll only need to make sure you're able to download the latest R29 release patch.
Our Support Team has released this update to fix software crashes and enhance the stability of your QuickBooks edition. Here's how you can install the update:
That should do it, HERB8165. Please keep me on the loop if you have any more questions. All the best!
After I updated to Mojave, my toolbar icons text turned black. I used to be white. I tried Mojave in light mode and dark mode and still the text is black (and quite unreadable). Any ideas? Everything else "seems" to be working and QB 2016 is updated. Thanks!
Herb8165: There seem to be a lot of issues that people are writing about with Mojave in QB 2016 on the Mac. Several responses simply say that they are "working on it." Most report issues with crashes. I upgraded to Mojave and all looks good except the text is now black on the toolbar and therefor it's difficult to read. My invoices, checks, lists etc all seem to work fine. I upgraded from High Sierra. That may be one of the issues if people have not been keeping up with the current OS upgrades. Sorry I can't be more help.
Hello there everyone.

Fill me in if you have further questions about QuickBooks compatibility. I'm here to help as much as I can.
All of a sudden ... TODAY ... my tool bar words show in white rather than black. Did YOU fix it or did I?! Ha! There have been so many machinations with "billy-rigging" all my software since the Mojave upgrade, I wonder was it you or me!? If it was you, Thank you!
That's awesome to hear, rswc90.
I'm glad your tool bar words now showing in white and everything's been working fine.
Just as what my colleague @Jen_D mentioned above; we continuously roll out updates which can help fix QuickBooks software crashes and enhance the stability of the program. But of course, we wouldn't be able to resolve this without your help and patience.
So, I guess, it's both Hurray for us!
Come back to the Community if you ever need more help- I am ready, waiting, and excited to help you.
Have a great one!
Hello there, @PDXGardinista.
Thanks for reaching out to us here in the Community. I'm here to share some information about the compatibility of QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) for Mac 2014 to Mojave.
Just so you're aware, QBDT for Mac 2014 was discontinued last May of 2017, and is not compatible with Mojave. To regain your access to your QuickBooks company file, you can restore your previous Operating System (OS) or upgrade to QBDT for Mac 2019 version.
You can also download the 30-day trial version of the 2019 version through this link: http://www.qblittlesquare.com/. For further assistance, I'd highly suggest contacting our Phone Support team. Here's how you can reach them:
2. Choose your QuickBooks product at the upper right.

Please let me know how it goes after contacting them by leaving a comment. I'd be glad to answer should you have additional questions. Take care!
